Nui is just broken

After numerous installs, I've given up on Nui until the fixes are done. I play on Undermine, a US realm.

I raid with Bigwigs, DBM, CLCRET, GRID, OMEN, Pally Power and Recount, and since the patch my UI has been very messed up. There have been numerous issues:
  • Minimap being moved to top right, yet leaving the box down at the bottom. It looks similar to the numerous pics by the European realms that uploaded the NUI fixes prior to their own patch.

    *Grid, Recount, Omen being moved to different parts of the screen and unable to relock into the bottom right box as was done before.

    *Memory leaks - many: The game actually crashed a few times. (This was the biggie. I usually raid at 70 fps at ultra settings, but I was getting 20 to 30 fps and being kicked to the desktop at odd times.)

    HUD resetting at each login.

Most of this occured after I deleted my cache, WTF, and Addon folderyet reloaded NUI with the above addons.

I've been using Nui for 2 years and have loved it, but something went wrong this last patch and broke it. Thank you, Scott for the 2 years of a great addon UI.

Did you install 5.06.25?

Did you try running nUI with *NO* other addons to see if it was nUI or another addon?

Agree on "broken'

It almost seems Blizz has targeted you this time. Each repair just seems to cascade into more issues.
Ive tried everything including dumping all addons and just run NUI which ultimately doesnt help me any since its the addons i want in the first place.
Continual issues around chat frames not integrating well. I can manually reposition them but they go back on their own not only on relogging but during play. I run a spriest as one of my alts and todays logon. the shadow button is missing and my maps and chat frames are messed up.

My relationship with NUI is one of love-hate. when its working, i love it, when its not, im so pissed, im looking for new UI. I may just go back to an action bar addon again. Sorry, but when days after a patch, my gameplay is screwed up and im pissed off, whats the point - im here to have fun.

Hope you are successful at fixing the problems.

Meh... that's not going to make me want to jump through the monitor to help you. If you haven't figured out by now that we're busting our asses to fix any bugs, then you're never going to.

Read the threads... the problems *ARE* fixed with the exception of a couple of minor purely cosmetic things. If they're not fixed for you, then you are not following the directions that have been given at least a dozen times now. I can't crawl through the interwebs and performs the steps for you... you have to follow the directions accurately.

<SOME> of you people simply amaze me... I play WoW with Scott on our guild realm, so I PERSONALLY know how much time he is putting in testing and creating one patch after another in an attempt to fix all the problems that were created by the patch. He has barely slept in the past 48 hours because he's trying to get these things resolved for the users... He has a regular job you know. He gets a (very) few donations a month for nUI, but it comes nowhere NEAR to bringing in enough to live on. The man had patches coming out within an HOUR of the blizz debacle. I guarantee no other addon author was or is doing that much work......

I'm gonna stop now... I can feel a tirade building, and out of respect for Scott and the folks who run WoWI I don't wanna go there... again...

Tried just loading NUi only. had to reset twice and finally the left chat frame was in sync with NUI framebox. The right frame components are situated in the center of the NUI frame and not within the NUI's right frame box. cant seem to manually move it either
Is there something within the wow ui interface option that might be interferring?
Willing to try anything

Apologize

Apology to Scott. Been using the addon for a while now but havent paid attention to threads to understand the issues. I can appreciate the efforts. I was just frustrated and posted without considerations. It wont happen again.

I have donated a couple times in past and will do so more. Keep up the good work Scott

When you disable the plugins that added chat functions to the info panels like whispers, guild chat, etc, those "extra" chat frames get abandoned. nUI does not try to force "extra" frames to be docked because many users like to create extra frames and drag them out onto the playing field.

You can move those by right clicking on their respective settings tabs and selecting the "Unlock" option... then drag the tab for that chat frame over to the "General" tab in the default chat frame and drop them there... that will redock those extra frames onto nUI's main chat frame.

Once you have them all redocked, do a '/nui rl' to clean up the layout and you should be all set. After Xrystal gets her chat info panel plugins fixed, those extra frames will automatically undock and return to the info panel.

One hopes Worse case scenario I will have it creating a new frame and releasing it on log out ( for those that don't need to keep any personal settings ) . In that instance just remove the chat frames you no longer need or adjust them to what you want

Thanks Scott

I had to unload all addons including NUI. Reload and select NUI only. It took some time load,unloading and trying different combinations.
My issues were not in the additional addons outside of NUI but the the enhancement addons designed specifically for NUI.
They were NUI InfoPanels: Guildchat, DualStats and _Stats which may require updates.

Try dualstats and stats on their own. I know my guild chat plugin is a dud until I get to working on it so I suspect that is breaking the others in turn and I believe dualstats and stats aren't designed to be active at the same time. Conflict of interest like

Not calling you out because we already cleared that up... but for future reference the problems with the chat frame plugins have been documented in almost every thread on the problems with nUI after that patch. We could have saved us both a lot of frustration.

But it's all good and I'm sorry you had such a horrible time with this patch... it caught us all by surprise and I regret that I wasn't more prepared for it.

I'm still having an issue with the chat panel. I only see 1.5 lines of it at a time. I've tried loading Nui only and the problem still exists. I've also re-downloaded the newest release. If immediately upon logging in I do a /nui rl and wait patiently the chat frame returns to normal. This also works with addons enabled. Any suggestions?

That is probably related to the problem that pops the frame out of the container Scott makes for it. I think he said he would be looking into that side of it tonight.

Did you try setting the font? Right click the "General" tab and select a font size from the menu.

I have tried that, it doesn't make any difference. Only the /nui rl seems to fix it. I've gone into the blizzard menu and changed my chat back to the classic style. Can't stand the new style. The problem occurs with it set to classic. Haven't tried the other.

Can you post a screen shot please? (use the paperclip icon in the editor to attach it to your reply).

Do you have any other addons installed like WIM, Prat, Chatter
